TMS Scholarship Winner

Shelby Beloate was the 2013 recipient of The Foundation for Rural Service (FRS) and Telecom Management Services (TMS) college scholarship in the amount of $1,500.  Shelby is the 18 year old daughter of Chris and Missy Beloate of Puryear, Tennessee.  She is a 2013 graduate of Henry County High School, where she played basketball and golf, and was on the 4-H Youth Skeet Shooting Team.

Shelby was also Football Homecoming Queen and Miss Henry County High 2013.  Shelby has a heart for giving back to her community.  She was a Tennessee Scholar with over 250 hours of community service and participates in the outreach ministries of her church youth group. She will be attending Murray State University to pursue a degree in Animal Science and Pre-Veterinary Medicine, specializing in large farm animals.  By being a veterinarian, she hopes to return to her rural area to serve.

FRS was established in 1994 and seeks to sustain and enhance the quality of life throughout Rural America by advancing an understanding of rural telecommunications issues. TMS, who is in cooperation with FRS, was established in 2011 and consists of a team of telecommunication professionals who oversee the day-to-day operations of WK&T Telecommunications and two other rural telecommunications companies serving a combined 85,000 rural customers. The Beloates are members of the WK&T rural cooperative.

“It is our pleasure to offer this scholarship to Shelby and we wish her the best of luck as she begins her collegiate studies,” said TMS Chief Marketing Officer Carrie Huckeby. “Helping our local schools and local students has always been a priority for the cooperatives we serve.”
